Conservation Groups Continue to Challenge
Aerial Wolf Control Program in Alaska

Anchorage, Alaska - Another court battle has been waged over Alaska's aerial wolf and bear control programs. Now two conservation groups are taking their fight to court.

Defenders of Wildlife and the Alaska Wildlife Alliance filed a lawsuit today in Alaska Superior Court, challenging the science of this form of population control. The groups say the plan, which covers about 40 million acres in the Interior, also violates state law because it is inconsistent with state statutes dealing with game management.

State wildlife officials implemented the population control to boost the numbers of caribou and moose in the area.

It's not known when a decision will be made in the case.
